Playing chicken with our health…

This horrendous game continues with a mystery bill. But we can still win this! 

Whatever Mitch McConnell comes up with to get 50 votes will be a nightmare for any state. However, by using budget reconciliation, legislation has to comply with the Byrd Rule, as judged by the Senate Parliamentarian. Democrats must call out any provision (and there are at least seven of them) that don’t comply.

How do we win? We bury them ALL in calls. 

If they are Democrats, they need your support AND big call tallies to show their GOP colleagues. 

If they are Republicans, tell them to start collecting packing boxes. If you have friends or family with GOP senators, have them join you in this battle.

Script for Dem Senators: I calling to ask Senator [___] to continue to fight the TrumpCare bill with “point of order” objections to anything that breaks the Byrd rules, and to offer as many amendments as possible to delay final voting.

Script for Republican Senators: I calling to ask Senator [___] to vote against whichever version of TrumpCare bill is on the table today. These proposals will destroy the lives of thousands of people from our state and we will all remember your actions next time voting comes around.

Senator Feinstein: DC (202) 224-3841, LA (310) 914-7300, SF (415) 393-0707, SD (619) 231-9712, Fresno (559) 485-7430

Senator Harris: DC (202) 224-3553, LA (213) 894-5000, SAC (916) 448-2787, Fresno (559) 497-5109, SF (415) 355-9041, SD (619) 239-3884
